As with all GNU software, you can choose a different installation path
and maybe even a different executable suffix to make sure that your two
versions of Guile can coexist.  For example:

  $ ./configure --program-suffix=-1.8 && make

This will put Guile in (subdirs of) `/usr/local' and all its executables
(i.e., `guile', `guile-config', `guile-tools', etc.) will have a name
suffixed by `-1.8'.  This way, you can keep your hand-compiled 1.8 along
with the package-provided 1.6.
